Yamaha Revstar RS420 Black Steel
The Yamaha Revstar RS420 Electric Guitar are the first completely new Yamaha guitars for 20 years, taking everything they’ve learnt to reimagine and redesigned the Revstar series. The Yamaha Revstar has been designed with a stage-ready, industrial aesthetic in mind with custom wound pickups and super comfy neck profiles. The Revstar RS420 features 2 alnico humbuckers which are slightly higher grade than the ceramic pickups on the 320, as well as a tune-o-matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece and a striking black steel finish.
Inspired by Street Racing Motorbikes
The Yamaha Revstar has been designed with a cool, raw look, drawing inspiration from London and Tokyo vintage street-racing motorbikes. The Revstar model is the first brand new Yamaha guitar range to launch in 20 years and adheres to Yamaha's 50-year guitar manufacturing legacy
Custom Wound Pickups
The Yamaha Revstar RS420 features custom wound alnico humbuckers in the bridge and neck. The pickup configuration of the RS420 combines with the Maple/Nato body and neck to produce a resonant, warm clean tone and a crunchy, blues like tone when the output signal is overdriven.
Researched, Tested, Redesigned
Nothing from the original Revstar designs made the final cut, every element has been thoroughly scrutinised, reviewed and redesigned in the search for perfection. The Revstar range has designed in conjunction with a leading design agency and a global team of designers, to research and develop every element of the guitar, searching for the perfect balance of uniqueness and familiarity in every curve, component and colour.
